Early research applied theories and methods of cognitive psychology to ability and achievement constructs, particularly the ability to use visual-spatial mental models in problem solving. Later research focused on the more general construct of academic intelligence - particularly its measurement and the use of ability profiles in adapting instruction to the needs of learners. He is co-author of The Cognitive Abilities Test and has published numerous articles in journals and chapters in books.
